So often our projects need a little more than just a bow. Today I am going to teach you how to tie a double bow. It is so easy to do, I am shocked I have not show you this before. All you need to do is wrap the Ribbon around your fingers a couple of times and you have something beautiful for all of your projects.  You are going to need some extra ribbon, because now you will have two bows on each side. But pass that it really is easy to make these bows. Here are the written instructions, but don’t fear I have a video for you too. 

How to Tie a Double Bow

  1. Wrap the ribbon or twine behind the index finger and in front of the middle finger.  (Tip: The width apart your fingers are will be the size of the loops in your bow.)
  2. You’ll wrap the ribbon around twice in a figure 8 fashion.
  3. Now, let’s tie it up!  You’ll take the end of your ribbon and put it over the figure 8 and thread it through the V your index and middle finger creates.

  4. Pull that end all the way underneath – we’re going to use it again!

  5. Now, to tie the bow tight!  Slide the end of the ribbon underneath the wrapped area on the top. Pull that end tight – this is how we secure out bow.
  6. Once it’s tight you can slide the bow right off of your finger tips. Now is when you will work with the ribbon to shape it up, then trim the ends to your desired length.

  7. Now, don’t forget!  You can use all types of ribbons, twine and thread to create this type of bow. 

Got It! okay, here is the video.
